Great pasta and friendly staff

The pasta was very good but the noodles were a little heavy. The fact that it is house made pasta really makes up for it. The wait staff was very friendly and the restaurant was charming.

We were here for a Saturday lunch. The lunch menu consisted primarily of nonsandwich items. Although the number of entrees that were vegetarian (excluding salads) was limited to 1, it was quite good. The others were quite pleased with their food as well although one dish was not warm enough. We sent it back and it was re-served. the server... More

A friend and I went here for their pasta special. I had the linguine and my friend had the fettuccine Diablo. The Linguine was fantastic. I was barely able to finish the whole plate. We also had chef salad with our meals. It was too much food. Friendly staff. We sat outdoors, perfect.AAA

We went to Chianti's over 20 years ago, and the food is still fantastic. I had the diable fettucine, and I was very sad that I couldn't finish it off (I had to make room for the spumoni of course). My lovely dinner companion wanted cannelloni, but with an Alfredo sauce. Our server Pablo said that would not be a... More

When here with a group of family members who were in Edmonton for a wedding. This was our first night out on this trip. What a surprise. This restaurant was just wonderful. The service was friendly, prompt and efficient and the food was excellent. Much to our surprise splitting the bills was not a problem for them. The meals were... More

Chianti's has consistent quality of food and service - and portion-sizes two can share (which you'll want to, because it's so good! I dislike the noise a little when it's busy, but it's still nice enough and quiet enough for an intimate meal.

After many of my friends telling me that Chianti has very good pasta at a reasonable price, I decided to go there have dinner. The pasta I ordered came with almost no topping at all. It was basically pasta and sauce. I was expecting more cheese and meat. However, I could hardly find any meat there at all. Later, I... More

We recently went to Chianti's for dinner with friends from the States, and thoroughly enjoyed our meal and drinks. We started with the antipasto plate which was huge and very tasty. The fried zucchini sticks and calamari were especially good. We shared with eight people and there was lots to spare. We then had half portions of various pastas for... More

Me and my parents were up in Edmonton for the FIFA Women's World Cup on Opening night and we came here for lunch the day we left Edmonton. We had the Lasagna and it was very good. To much Sauce tho. Servers need to walk faster. And yes I mean that as well. Well be coming back.
